The details behind the origin and history of Veil, including her recruitment into Desert Sword. This Iraqi super-team was dispatched to abduct a Kuwait scientist during Iraq's forceful occupation of the nation. They fought the United States' Freedom Force and, rather than let Desert Sword take the scientist, Pyro killed him instead. Desert Sword defeated Freedom Force, forcing them to retreat, but not before Pyro dealt a killing blast of fire to the Veil.
Recently a woman with the codename Veil (which may or may not be the Veil of Desert Sword) surfaced during the superhero Civil War. This Veil having obtained Skrull DNA sent it to a lab in order to help those who wished to avoid registration. However during a raid made by the new Heroes for Hire, Veil managed to escape and she has not been seen since.
